It's always 1966.
gotta include 2 of the taper's section surprises, previously unreleased - and real good.
If you go to the taper's section,
search for mindbender, and or, here's the page (not song) link with the version:
plus my comment there on why I like it.
Mindbender, from Feb 2, 1966.
Great Great Society-tinged lead break!
Then there's the rare Cream Puff War David kindly uploaded for your download pleasure, you freeloaders ya!
(I actually paid to download the 1966 Rare Cuts and Oddities aalbum from the official GD site 2 years or so ago, feeling sympathetic towards Owsley who found the long lost reels in an old do-nut open box from a rent-a-car trunk marked, Hertz, Dough-nut)
Now that page with the early '66 Cream Puff featuring additional lyrics is at:
And the other rare GD tune from '66 I really like is
"Keep Rolling By" -
it's on Birth of the Dead and the Golden Road (recluses can try Limewire if you're dead broke but save some pennies for the Rex Foundation asap, nothin's free!)
PS anyone, does this work?
Here, try this high bit rate virus-free wma - close the download and it will start up automatically in Windows Media - at least see if it will play for you - I came up with the A-side song title for Cyril and the band, Tomorrow Never Comes (duh!)
The b-side, Run And Hide is even better imho, this one featuring the in-the-moment/experience-rich dulcet tones of Cyril Jordan (lead gtr.) along with Paulie the usual lead singer.
The Flamin' Groovies' Cyril J. was an old friend (or rather, a young friend) of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan from '66.
Ron used to share his wine bottle at the Fillmore/Avalon with Master Cyril before the crowds
(as many as 50-110 hipsters) showed up - everybody knew everybody was cool in '66... (not one Cosmic Charlie Manson at all!)
Breaking news: Meet the latest Magic Christian, world-class replacement for M.C. drummer Prairie Prince -
Blondie drummer Clem Burke!!
Also getting in on the act is one of the main men from The Plimsouls...
this is beginning to sound like a super-group!
M.C. rehearsed this June '07 in L.A. and everybody's happy nowadays!
so this is the long-suffering acid-jughead cult faves the Flamin' Groovies, legendary founder Cyril Jordan's cool new '60s-tinged Magic Christian (named after the Ringo Badfinger Peter Sellers movie, based on the the Terry Southern book).
